What is the optimal moisture content for masonry before painting can begin?


How can you determine the moisture content of a concrete block (CMU) wall, and how can you judge when the moisture level is sufficiently low to paint?


Do I need to pay attention to the permeability of the coating when specifying coatings for the exteriors of CMU walls?


How can it be determined if moisture within a CMU wall is causing repeated coating failure? If so, can the source of moisture entry be accurately identified for correction?
